ASUS ROG Zenith Extreme Alpha – ASUS Takes Threadripper to The Next Level

For the test platform, we have the 2990WX on the Asus Zenith Extreme Alpha with Corsair Vengeance running at 3200MHz CL 15. We are running a Thermaltake AIO Triple Radiator cooling solution on the CPU to make sure we don’t get any throttling on the CPU. The operating system is Windows 10 Pro X64 with updates disabled. We make three runs at each test then average those three runs and report the results here. If we hit a run that we consider being far away from the norm we dismiss that result and run a 4th test.
